Paychex FSA, HSA, and HRA plans

Help employees pay for health care while you save on social security, Medicare, and unemployment taxes

Whether your focus is a group health plan or supporting individual coverage, offering benefit plans like a flexible spending account (FSA), health savings account (HSA), and health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) may provide employees with competitive health insurance while potentially saving you money.

Health benefit plans allow employers and employees to set aside funds before they’re taxed, in order to help employees pay for qualified medical expenses in the absence of coverage or not covered by their health plan, and save employers on FICA and FUTA taxes.

  • Save on taxes

    FSAs and HSAs can save employees an average of 30 percent in federal, state, and local taxes on out-of-pocket premiums. And an average of $115 per participant in FICA payroll taxes.

  • Help employees pay for their health care

    Each benefit plan helps employees pay for qualified expenses in their own ways, but they all make paying for health care a little easier for employees who may be feeling the strain.
